I am filing "married but filing separately" and i accidentally inserted the wrong date of birth for my husband.

I'am filing "married but filing separately" and I accidentally inserted the wrong date of birth for my husband. I tried going to "Personal Info" & selecting my spouse's name then clicking on "Edit." But it doesn't give me the option to change the date of birth.

Try using the steps below to get your spouse's birth date changed.

First, change your filing status to Married Filing Jointly:

1. Go to "Personal Info" at the top of the page

2. Select "Edit" next to marital status

3. Select you are "Married", then answer the question "Do you want to file this return together with your spouse?"

4. Answering "Yes" will get you the Married Filing Jointly status

5. Continue answering the questions in this section until finished

Next change your husband's birth date:

1. Go to "Personal Info" at the top of the page

2. Select "Edit" next to his name

3. Change his DOB and then save

Finally, change your filing status back to Married Filing Separately:

1. Go to "Personal Info" at the top of the page

2. Select "Edit" next to marital status

3. Select you are "Married", then answer the question "Do you want to file this return together with your spouse?"

4. Answering "No" will get you the Married Filing Separately status
